Farzi Café, the fine dining brand that launched near New Delhi in 2014 and now operates nine restaurants in India and one in Dubai, has made its UK debut, in London’s Haymarket.
The concept combines “traditional Indian and global dishes transformed by molecular techniques”. Farzi Café is led by award-winning chef Saurabh Udinia. His signature dishes include dal chawal arancini (Sicilian arancini balls made with dal and chawal served with aachar, papad and chutney), and tandoori wild mushrooms with truffle and walnut dust. Farzi Café London has joined forces with Dare Hospitality to offer a laboratory-style bar serving concoctions inspired by India’s Hindu past.
Each cocktail is created using equipment such as centrifugal machines and a sonic homogeniser. The venue also offers wine from small producers, alongside beer from Indian craft brewer White Rhino.
